ABSTRACT
The article reports that Otisville State Correctional Facility in New York is saving money and stabilizing its supply of fresh produce through an expanding hydroponics program. David Schor, Otisville's foodservice administrator, believes hydroponics and corrections are a perfect match because of savings in labor cost and utility bills, plus the educational and rehabilitative value for inmates. Schor calculated that the hydroponics program saves the department between $1,500 and $1,800 a year.
